Donald Trump won power with the promise of tackling illegal drug use in America, where more than 10,500 people died from heroin overdose in 2014. Heroin is a rapidly growing problem in the US and much of the supply comes from neighbouring Mexico, where more and more of the drug is being produced, according to White House figures.
